broken. his strategy will be to sort of play defense. not make any mistakes, play it very safe. he's got to stick to the strategy, which is emphasize the positives in the last four years and do what he's been doing, attack romney, attack him on that 47%. the other thing obama has to do, he's done a little bit but he hasn't to a certain degree is lay out specifics for a second term. if you look at the swing voters, they want to know what they're going to do. he's got to do that a little bit more. finally, in previous debates where obama has gotten in trouble, he seemed cocky and overconfident. >> there's a lot of talk about that. he could create trouble for himself if he goes down that road. that comes naturally. how do you overcome that? >> a lot of people have been talking about with hillary clinton when he said you're likeable enough, hillary. that was a similar dynamic. obama was winning the likability race there. he said it almost in an offensive way. he's got to be careful that -- obama doesn't have a lot of respect for mitt romney. >> exactly. does that manifesto owe that's goi

doesn't. it's an emergency right now. it's a national security issue. the department of defense needs educated americans. if we're not educating them and the private sector said it's okay that prisons is the big business but education isn't. that is mess eed up. >> i want to come in on that. i'm all in favor of stem education but just think about the high school drop out problem in america. we have 28% of our young people in this country who aren't graduating. 28%. >> america's big problem is the teachers aren't paid enough so they're not motivated enough and they're not trained enough. >> go to any college or university campus this is the cradle of innovation. this is where facebook came from, twitter, google. everything we think of came from apple, yahoo. it's coming from here. this is where the republicans need to address immigration policies. you go to college campus and you'll see people from korea, china. you'll see people from asia, people from latin america. this is the country which everyone criticizes and yet wants to immigrate. >> thanks again to president clinton and my pa

years of the holy defense in which saddam hussein backed by many western powers was against our nation, and then witnessed many other events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the world is coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people, we condemn. likewise, we condemn a

hand even though he too is on the defensive as it relates to health care? >> the president is clearly in the lead, but still in a somewhat precarious position. he is defying gravity. he still has at least 2/3 of the country saying we're on the wrong track, usually that's a very difficult environment for the incumbent to get elected. and for the president, voters are not convinced they wanted to go the romney's direction, but extending where we are for the next four years is not an attractive process. he's got to walk that tight rope by saying we are moving in the right direction. and also kind of give people a sense of the next four years that are going to be better in their arrives than the previous four have been. >> sometimes we look ahead and see that yes, what these candidates say is going to be important and pivotal what their body language has said. who can forget the gore-bush debate, and you have to wonder between these two candidates, romney and obama, who's likely to win, who's likely to be too breathy, or maybe be an easy read just by finally expressions that could

defense of the homeland. it is a nice word to use. it is a nice term. >> usually, maria, republicans use that word and quite effectively. >> yeah. actually, that's why i think it is very smart for the president to do this and ann is right. it does work. i think he is smart to do this for the simple reason that what it really means is betting on america. it really gives the president a chance not just to contrast his policies against mitt romney's and how the president's policies will build out the middle class, and how romney's policies will build out the 1%, but it makes him focus or let's the focus be on what romney has actually done throughout his lifetime. on his taxes we see that he has invested in foreign countries with secret corporations in bermuda, banks in the cayman islands, switzerland -- >> a lot of americans invest in foreign countries. doesn't mean they're less patriotic. >> but it means that mitt romney's policies are not focused on building out the middle class in america. that's where i think it comes down. the contrast between somebody that really understands what it i

ronald reagan's defense secretary, was implicated in the iran contrascandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eureka, this is so surprisin
